The brief

People have always been interested in living abroad and in fact, it is regarded as a major benefit in anybody’s CV nowadays. Researchers are no different, and therefore we wish to discover innovative and novel ways which make international mobility as easy and as intriguing as possible in the future. Are you the one we are looking for to make this happen?

The background

Research and staff mobility is already vivid in Tampere University of Technology, University of Tampere and Tampere University of Applied Sciences, and the numbers will only increase after Tampere3 is in its full force. We want to be the best university in welcoming our incoming researchers as well as attracting new ones. However, the dialogue between us and the incoming researchers is currently not as efficient as it could be, and it doesn’t reach the desired high service levels.

The problem

How to make Tampere3 the best university for researchers all over the world? How to attract researchers of the future and their families to Tampere? How to make the choice of moving to Tampere and to Finland as exhilarating yet as easy as possible? How to exchange information between incoming researchers and Tampere3 in the most efficient way? How can we turn the experience of our incoming researchers and the ones still considering in coming to work with us into an easy and value-adding service?
